By Sizwe Dlamini

The MTN Foundation last week handed over a water project worth E100 000 to the community of Ezulwini.

The aforementioned project will assist 2485 homesteads. The handover took place at the Ezulwini Inkhundla last week Thursday.

The handover was graced by the representative of the Ezulwini Royal Kraal chief, Attorney General Sifiso Mashampu Khumalo, Indvuna Ndlavela Mavimbela and MTN Head of Corporate Services Sibusiso Nhleko, as well as members of Buhle Belizulu Water and Sanitation Scheme who would be overseeing the project on the behalf of the community of Ezulwini.

Speaking during the handover Nhleko noted that the project will assist an estimated 12 000 people.

“As MTN Eswatini we are celebrating 25 years of operations in the Kingdom of Eswatini and we believe in giving back to the communities that have supported us. It is important to remember that emaSwati have supported our organization for more than two glorious decades and we hope that the support will continue for many more years. As an organization, MTN sees itself as part and parcel of the community here at Ezulwini as our head offices are located in this thriving and vibrant area. In light of this, we are very happy to be handing over this very important project worth E100 000 and we believe it will assist about 2485 homesteads”.

Also speaking at the handover Buhle Belizulu Chairperson Enoch Ndada said that the project will aid the eight sub-communities of Ezulwini.

“The water project will assist the areas of Somnjalosi, Hini, Nyonyane, Longalaza, Mvutjini, Nshakabili, Gelekeceni, and Makholweni, all situated around Ezuluwini. We would like to thank the MTN Foundation for their assistance, however, we also ask them to aid us again in the future as we continue supporting them. Also, we would like to thank our Inkhundla for authorizing the project that began in 2021. Today, the MTN Foundation has brought us samples of the pipes that have been used in the project as well as showing us samples of the tanks and other equipment used in this project”.

Ezulwini Inkhundla representative Steven Dlamini also thanked the MTN Foundation for funding the project and thanked Big Game Parks for their contribution to the project.

Meanwhile, Master of Ceremonies (MC) at the event Greg Khumalo said that members of the public should continue supporting MTN as the organization now employs individuals who were not even born when the mobile network first opened its doors.
